Principal's Welcome to CHS School Year 2018-2019 Islanders!

Welcome, Islander students and families, to the Coronado High School 2018-19 school year!

I am honored to serve as principal of Coronado High School, supporting a tradition of excellence and opportunities for our students.  I am energized by the Coronado High School’s dedicated and inspiring staff, talented and engaged students, and generous and involved families and community members.  Starting my seventh year at Coronado High School and twenty-fourth year in education I am most looking forward to the opportunity to support all programs on this campus.  We have an amazing community; I am here to support our continued success and future growth.  

Here at Coronado High School we are not only providing the foundational learning to support a broad base of knowledge of the world, but we are helping students become solution seekers.  One of the questions the Coronado High School staff asks is “what do Coronado High School students need to develop into successful, happy people?” We want Coronado High School students to ask questions too; what questions will YOU ask?  A few other questions that we will use to guide, build and sustain the Coronado High School learning environment are: What experiences do Coronado High School students want during their time here? What new strengths will Coronado High School students uncover?  What new challenges will Coronado High School students explore?

All students can achieve and I look forward to helping Coronado High School students thrive!  I challenge the CHS students to learn something from everyone you meet, including but not limited to a peer, a teacher, a counselor, and a custodian.   Everyone here brings value to our environment and we are fortunate to be surrounded by talented, smart, and creative people. Collaborate in the classroom, enjoy the teamwork on the field or pool, and shine on the stage - YOU find YOUR place at CHS.  If it does not exist, help us build it. Students have the power to make change and lead. What impact will you make?

We thank our families and community partners for supporting students. It’s going to be a wonderful year.  If you are new to CHS make sure to peruse our website to learn more about our achievements, our rigorous and diverse course offerings, clubs, special events, and amazing supporters like CSF, PTO, ISF, and CorArtsEd.   

You are part of our Islander Family!
